Be DOPE all by yourself: A guide to "Me TIME"
Updated: Jul 31, 2019
“Make yourself a priority once in a while. It’s not selfish. It’s necessary .”
Being the introvert I am, social settings are usually pretty exhausting for me. Sometimes I just need to be alone or I want to be alone! I thrive on alone time. While I definitely enjoy time with my husband, family & friends, I've learned that ME TIME is very necessary.
Here are 10 ME TIME activities I recommend:
Read a good book: Sometimes getting lost in a good book is all you need to escape the stress of reality.
DIY Project: Spend an afternoon creating artwork, fixing something around the house, or changing up your hair. Youtube has so many easy to follow tutorials that are PERFECT to complete alone!
Get a Mani-Pedi: There is nothing more relaxing then getting pampered! Enjoy an afternoon alone where your biggest worry is what color to get on your nails!
Take a walk (or run): Grab your pup, a bottle of water, and some headphones and head for a walk in your neighborhood. Use this time to clear your mind and get a slight workout in as well.
Go see a movie: Pack your snacks and go catch a matinee girl! The reclining seats at the theaters now are perfect for relaxation.
Go to Brunch: Sleep in until 11 on a Saturday and then head to your favorite brunch spot. Bottomless mimosas & Bacon are two of my favorite pick me ups!
Go Shopping: A perfect way to complete any Sunday Funday is shopping! Head to the mall and get those deals! (side note: I LOVE shopping by myself so I don't have to hear my husband ask ONE MILLION TIMES "Don't you already have that?" LOL)
Keep a Journal: Writing blog posts whether I post them or not has been so therapeutic for me. My blog has become my journal; the best thing I never knew I needed. Try it!
Take a Nap: Seriously, this speaks for itself. I think adults should have a mandatory nap time. Naps give me an immediate attitude adjustment on any day!
Take a Vacay -SOLO: I've heard some amazing things about solo travel. & though I haven't tried it, I can't wait to plan a trip of my own. You can also incorporate all the other activities into your vacation!
Thanks for reading! : )
